Homemade Mint Sugar Scrub

Yields: 1/2 cup of homemade mint sugar scrub (I usually store my scrubs in 4oz glass jelly jars.)


2 tablespoons minced fresh mint (about 20 mint leaves)
1/2 cup organic extra virgin coconut oil
1/4 cup granulated white sugar


Combine all ingredients. (Unlike my coconut oil lotions, I do not recommend heating the coconut oil prior to mixing because you don’t want it to dissolve the sugar.)

To Use

On your hands – Massage into your hands and fingernails for 30 seconds. Rinse and pat dry.
On your legs and feet – Massage into your legs and feet while in the bath or sitting on the side of the bathtub. Rinse and pat dry. (Never use on your feet in the shower because the coconut oil is slippery and you risk falling.)
